Read on to learn how to easily and quickly identify your van model and avoid costly ordering mistakes.
RAM ProMaster Cargo Van Configurations
The RAM ProMaster (full size van) is sold in three models: 1500, 2500, and 3500. In addition, the ProMaster is available in three wheelbases (118, 136, or 159 inches) and with either the standard or high roof. Further, the RAM ProMaster comes in four cargo area lengths: 8, 10, 12, or 13 feet.
Here’s how each ProMaster cargo van can be configured.
|136″||Standard or High||10′|
|ProMaster 2500||136”||Standard or High||10′|
|ProMaster 3500||159”||High||12′ (regular) or 13′ (extended)|
How To Spot RAM ProMaster Cargo Van Models
Look at the Emblem
The badging on the doors will show the ProMaster’s model information. While this emblem won’t offer all of the van’s specs, it’s a start. For instance, if the van is a ProMaster 3500, it can only have a 159-inch wheelbase and high roof – you would then just need to determine if you have the regular or extended body length.
Check the Window Sticker
The van’s window sticker (sometimes referred to as the Monroney sticker) is the best information source for your ProMaster’s details. This document lists roof height, wheelbase, cargo area length, and other specs. Federal law requires that this sticker be provided at the time of purchase (if the van was bought new). If you can’t locate it or if the van was purchased second-hand, go online for a replacement. Add the VIN to the end of the link below, and a replica can be downloaded and printed.
Locating the VIN
The van’s vehicle identification number (VIN) is essential information you may need to identify RAM ProMaster model details. The VIN is located on:
- Dealer records (a sales contract or service receipt)
- The van’s registration or certificate of title
- The certification label (on the driver’s door jamb)
- Where the dashboard and windshield meet (on the driver’s side)
Try a VIN Decoder
Several websites, such as decodethis.com and vehiclehistory.com, offer a vehicle identification number (VIN) decoder, which provides a no-cost summary of your van’s specs (cargo area, roof height, and wheelbase). Remember that no third-party information source is perfect, so use these results to back up the information you’ve gathered elsewhere.
Use the RAM Owner Portal
The Mopar Owner’s Site provides a wealth of information about your RAM ProMaster cargo van, including model information and specifications. Just log in and look for the vehicle information tab. To sign-up, use the van’s uConnect system (if equipped) and the email you provided the RAM dealer when buying the vehicle.
Let a RAM Dealer Help
With the vehicle’s VIN in hand, contact a local RAM dealer for assistance. Ideally, the dealer associate can provide a hard copy of the details or email the information. If receiving this information verbally, ask to reconfirm the specs.
